Within the Kansas City Royals bullpen Cerberus of Greg Holland, Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera, it seems as though Herrera is somewhat forgotten. Perhaps this is because of his role in the seventh inning, or just from the sheer dominance of Davis and Holland, but Herrera seems to be relatively unnoticed.
Now that setup men are starting to get their due in the All-Star Game, it is a perfect time for Herrera to shine. While he has not been as dominant this season as he was in 2014, Herrera has still posted an excellent 1.95 ERA and a 0.946 WHiP, striking out 37 batters in his 37 innings of work.
The All-Star Game also gives Herrera a chance to be known nationally as more than the pitcher who threw behind Brett Lawrie. Now, if he enters the game, Herrera can be known for his ability to fire 100 MPH fastballs by the opposition, showing why the Royals have the best bullpen in baseball.
Kelvin Herrera is a key part of the Kansas City Royals bullpen. Hopefully, if he gets in the game tonight, he can erase the image of that one unfortunate incident.
